Clients 18 years and younger with private health insurance are required to provide documentation of immunization coverage. All immunizations are given on a walk-in basis. Immunization prices can be found on the Fees page. Immunization questions? Call 913-826-1261 and leave a message.
Our walk-in immunization clinic wait times vary at this time of year. Please visit vaccines.gov to locate alternative vaccination providers. If you have private insurance or Medicaid, you may call the phone number located on the back of your insurance card for in-network providers.
Note: If the estimated wait time exceeds our hours of operation, we may find it necessary to suspend our services. You can try again when the queue opens later in the day or on the next available business day.
The Johnson County Department of Health and Environment (JCDHE) is not a primary care provider. If you need medical treatment, please call your health care provider or a local health clinic.

Types of Immunizations Available
School Required Immunizations
Parents/guardians are urged to make school vaccinations a priority for school-aged children. Our walk-in immunization clinics get busier as school enrollment approaches, so getting children vaccinated early will save time. Vaccines protect children against infections that can be deadly or cause problems such as blindness and hearing loss.
If your student needs immunizations to return to school, please bring a copy of the letter you received with the student's name and their full vaccination record. Your child’s school may provide the full vaccination record upon request.
